Chevrolet has already released the new global C-segment Cruze as a sedan. We have also recently seen GM file a patent for an Australian-designed five-door hatchback version of the Cruze. So naturally, we're wondering what Chevy's plans are regarding a Cruze two-door coupe design. U.S. markets seem to do well with the coupe design, as evident with the Honda Civic, the Accord, and the Toyota Camry exclusively developed coupe variants.
According to GM North America president Mark Reuss, a two-door Cruze is something that just may show up. The pictures are renditions by Theophilus Chin of how a Cruze Coupe could look like. It's essentially a sporty Cruze Coupe SS with the with the more sophisticate European version of the torsion beam. It would also by powered by the 217-hp 2.0-liter turbo from the Opel Insignia, or perhaps the Opel Astra's 178-hp 1.6 Turbo Ecotec. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the guys at Chevy/GM go ahead with the plan. Photos courtesy of theophiluschin.com
